It's Party Time

by Meghann on February 25, 2010

I’ve been so busy at work lately that I had almost completely forgot our company’s quarterly meeting was this afternoon. How could I forget such an exciting event?

Each quarter we have a company wide meeting where the whole office comes together to discuss current and future initiatives. Its basically an hour of “Go, Team, Go!” :)

But, the best part happens after the meeting, when its time to party.

This quarter was Mardi Gras themed.

Everyone say “Hi Mike!”

He wanted to be on the blog. ;)

The best part was the cake!

You see that?

That’s me!

I have this rule where if a cake has my name on it, then I have to have a piece.

It was good cake too. White cake from Publix with strawberry filling. Delicious!

It was nice to mingle with my co-workers for a bit, but I had to cut out of the party early so that I could finish up some work at my desk. I ended up leaving the office pretty late and by the time I got home I was ready for a quick, filling meal.

I’ve had this idea in my head for a BBQ Stir Fry for the last couple days and was excited to finally have the chance to test it out tonight.

The inspiration came from the BBQ Tempeh I picked up from Whole Foods on Sunday.

I started with a sweet potato that I chopped into small cubes and sauteed on the stove top with a little olive oil and onions. Once the sweet potato was soft I added broccoli, mushrooms, apple, tempeh, spinach, and bbq sauce.

When everything was done I topped the stir fry veggies with some whole wheat cous cous and blue cheese.

Once again, I am a genius! All the flavors melted together perfectly. This is a great quick meal I am sure you will see again and again on here. :)

I ended the evening with some strawberries and dark chocolate cover edamame.

For those of you who were inquiring where you could purchase your own Fit & Fresh Breakfast Chiller, you can do so directly from their site by clicking here. I think they are selling for $10? Fit & Fresh have A LOT of other great containers on their site! Including the Deluxe Lunch Chiller which I am very close to purchasing myself!

I’m off to pack for my crazy racing weekend!

Whoa! It looks like there are quite a few of you interested in the “Grains of Goodness” giveaway. Keep those comments coming! Despite my extremely late breakfast, my stomach was growling for a snack around 10:30. I think the fasting only made me hungrier – another reason skipping breakfast does not work for me. I more »

The Most Important Meal of the Day

February 25, 2010

How do people not eat breakfast in the morning? I’m not sure I could survive. Having to fast through the night was not a big deal, but waking up this morning and having to fast before my appointment was absolute torture. When they finally took my blood at 8:00 am I felt weak, fatigued, and more »
